Starfield Simulation

A simple screensaver that simulates a starfield on your screen. Small white pixels act as stars and grow larger as they appear to move towards you, as though you are flying through space. The density of the starfield can be customized, as well as the warp speed.

good

This is a real screen saver, no more, no less, it's nice, it's space, just what I want, my favorite.

Hey Nick, then watch this: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-desktop/can-i-have-the-good-old-starfield-screen-saver-in/cfe39ce3-8081-4ef8-9adb-5585057f00d2?auth=1

On Windows 7 gets freeze after ~10 minutes, but maybe works fine on newer systems. Not sure :)

I think it is wonderful. I like that you can adjust both the number of stars and the speed. Certainly a low number of stars moving not very fast should use very little energy and will be a true screen saver. And, unlike a totally black screen, you can instantly see that you computer/monitor is in the screen saver mode.

I believe this used to be in an earlier version of windows but I don't find it in Windows 7 or Windows 10.

Thank you for providing it.

Thought I would never see this again, so glad I finally found it. Brings back old memories... ^_^

I was looking for this for a long time. I am pleased you offered this legacy simple but neat screen saver.

Not bad, consider making the pixels multi-colored and have a streak effect. more like the warp field from star trek.
